How to add data to a chart in Excel


Let me start this post by describing the steps most people take when creating a chart in Excel:

  • Prepare a table that contains the data set
  • Select that table
  • Click on the insert chart icon
  • Hope that the chart will look exactly like I want it to

Creating excel charts

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against hope, hope is good, but not when talking Excel and creating charts.

What is the alternative

Ok Radu, is there another way to go?



My short answer is yes, the longer answer can be found in this video that I posted on Youtube. This video is part of my Excel Data Analyst online course, that is why I start with welcome back :).

What do you think?
